Thank you so much for our visit. I place Copper Beech House at the top of our near perfect vacation. I saw angels everywhere. You made every minute comfortable, charming & exciting. The food, the guests, the books & art! The feeling of being in the right place. We'll miss you. Take care everyone,

~Allan & Donna 

“Salal house”

Reviewed November 1, 2014

Stayed October 2014, traveled with family

The table invites
Berry jams, native plums, Plaudietsch eggs
Spy glass from the small parlour
Delkatla docks, some fishing boats
A cosy loft room
Rain falls softly below
We return, but when?
The longing of fall

 Some of Our Rooms


The Retreat (2)

is the smallest room in the house ("A broad-minded person finds even a small space accommodating." -Chinese Proverb) and has the best view. Bathroom is private, though not en suite, and has a big claw-foot tub. Robes are provided for guests who need to use the facilities in the dark of night.

TOP FLOOR of the House

Cloud 9 (3)

Which we secretly refer to as the Secret’s Room, takes up the whole top floor of the house, and Sleeps three ; there is a queen-sized bed and a single bed (in a separate part of the room – useful if you have a child travelling with you, or you find yourself in a domestic dispute). There is a delightfully tiled bathroom en suite.

This is formerly the room that Sydney Harling Smith, the owner-before-David, made over every year in anticipation of the arrival of “The Secret”, a mysterious entity who never quite made it as far as Masset (as far as any of us know).

Douglas Coupland wrote the ending to his Generation A in The Secret’s Room.

The Chadwick Room (2-3)

overlooks the garden and is a tribute to the memory of Florence Chadwick. When David owned an antique shop in Toronto in the 60s, he acquired a steamer trunk full of her possessions, including her passport and other personal memorabilia. This room has been decorated with her adventuresome spirit in mind. The room has a queen-sized bed, and a private bathroom down a small flight of stairs.

The Harbour Master’s Keep (3)

Sleeps three; it has its own kitchenette and bathroom, and overlooks the tangled English garden. One double built in “captain’s bed” and one twin bed in a separate small room overlooking the harbour. Guests can sit out under the wisteria and drink their morning coffee or a sip a glass of homemade elderberry cordial.

Pierre and Maggie (the former Canadian Prime Minister, Pierre Trudeau and his wife) made this room their love nest when they visited Haida Gwaii, and stayed as David’s guests.

CANCELLATION POLICY: Due to our size, cancellations affect us greatly. Deposit and cancellation policies are generally less forgiving on Island than those of hotels or B&B’s in urban areas, as a last-minute cancellation may mean a significant loss to our somewhat vulnerable, remote island business, especially in the high season. (That said we try to be as understanding as we possibly can be, depending on the circumstances.)

IMPORTANT: We highly recommend that you contact your travel agent or credit card company regarding trip cancellation insurance to cover refund of accommodations costs in case of unforeseen changes to your plans (such as, but not limited to, delays, strikes, closure of air space, death in family, etc.).

MORE THAN 30 DAYS CANCELLATION: no cancellation fee.

14 to 30 DAYS CANCELLATION: you will be charged a $40 cancellation fee.

Please note the cancellation fee is per room, therefore if you are a group booking, you will be charged $40 per room cancelled.

LESS THAN 14 DAYS CANCELLATION: We reserve the right to charge you the full amount for your reservation. If we are able to rebook your room(s) we will gladly credit you the amount we are able to recoup minus the $40 cancellation fee.

EARLY CHECKOUT: The nights you have reserved are guaranteed exclusively for you. If you decide to leave early we reserve the right to charge you the full amount for your reservation. If we are able to rebook your room(s) we will gladly credit you the amount we are able to recoup minus the $40 cancellation fee.

DELAYED ARRIVAL: No refund of deposit with the exception of cancellation due to weather (in the event of the ferry or plane not making it to the Island.) In all other circumstances, should we be able to rebook all the nights, we will be pleased to credit you the amount we are able to recoup minus the $40 cancellation fee.

NO-SHOW OR SAME DAY CANCELLATION: Full night (or nights) charge.


Thank You  CBGH Staff
